This page within Virginia Tort Case Law is a compilation of cases reported by the Virginia Supreme Court and summarized by Brien Roche dealing with the topic of Skiing.   

2003 Nelson v. Great E. Resort Mgmt., 265 Va. 9, 574 S.E.2d 251.

Plaintiff injured while snow tubing. Trial court improperly instructed jury that owner/operator of this recreational facility owed no duty to protect a voluntary participant from the inherent risk of this activity. In this case, jury question was presented as to whether defendant exercised reasonable care by allowing another rider to commence the ride before plaintiff had exited and further question existed as to failure to warn plaintiff of such risk. Plaintiff was not injured as a result of the speed of her ride, she was injured by collision with another rider in her lane. As such, trial court improperly granted defense instruction on doctrine of inherent risk. Virginia has never adopted this doctrine.

1998 Hoar v. Great Eastern Resort Management, 256 Va. 374, 506 S.E.2d 777.

Jury issue presented as to negligence and causation in this skiing accident where plaintiff fell off slope that was extremely steep and unprotected.
